Captive screws are snapped into position just using thumb pressure. The aluminium grommet then retains the screw in the panel ensuring that on dis-assembly there are no loose components which enables compliance with Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC). Self-ejecting versions are also available for sliding fit panels.

SEMS (pre-assembled screws and washers) reduce inventory count and installed cost through increased production rates and the elimination of the down time trying to find lost components. SFC can supply SEMS in low volumes in a wide range of head styles and materials. Both SEMS and Captive screws reduce the chance of FOD (Foreign Object Damage) due to the reduction in loose components.
